An Honored Sinner

This is something I’ve been chewing on recently and I thought I would share. David in the Bible is described as “a man after God’s own heart.” God loved David so much that God chose to have Jesus come from David’s line. David is one of the most admired people in the Bible (he is…

Preserving Your Most Precious Book (introducing my wife’s leather by b)

My wife was born with gifted hands. She has a knack for learning different crafts and making beautiful things (see: http://needlesandmouse.blogspot.kr/). She always had a love for leather but only recently was able to take some leather classes. She was a natural and made wallets, a bag, a clutch, and some other neat things. But while she enjoyed making…

Your True Identity

Over the years of serving the orphans, pastoring at a church, and directing a healing/deliverance ministry, the subject of “identity” has stood out the most to me. With all the superhero movies in Hollywood this past decade, it seems the subject has been on their minds as well. “Who am I?” “Why am I here?” “How…

The Difference Between Grace and Mercy

I never thought about the difference between grace and mercy until yesterday while I was listening to an old sermon podcast where the two were brought up. The difference is far more powerful than I ever thought. Mercy is not receiving the punishment you deserve. The dictionary definition is, “compassion or forgiveness shown to someone whom it…

The Right Order of Serving

I was reading Isaiah 6 today and the description of the seraphim (heavenly creature) stood out to me. These “burning ones” have six wings: two to cover their face, two to cover their feet, and two to fly with. Two cover their face likely out of awe of God, two cover their feet likely out…

Going Deeper in the Bible

I began reading the Bible around my sophomore year of high school. For a few years I would read a chapter each day and get pretty much nothing out of it. For one, I used to read right before I fell asleep, so my focus wasn’t that sharp. But more than that I just didn’t know…

When It’s Time to Move On

I think one of the hardest things to do is to know when to move on from an unhealthy friendship or a difficult ministry relationship. Christians are taught to “leave the 99 for the one lost sheep” and to love those who don’t love back and to keep a persistent, unfailing love. The sad thing…

Crucial Marriage Prep…

If you are continually neglecting your body then you should not get married. Let me repeat that… if you are continually neglecting your body then you should not get married. Ephesians 5:28-30 – In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no…

What If You Had Everything?

What if you had all the money you ever needed? What if you had a ton of money in your bank account… enough to live for your full life on? What would your life be like? Would you feel absolute peace? Sky and I live off of support money. We don’t know how much we…

Spiritual Foundations

  Back when I was 19 years old I attended some “spiritual maturity” classes that my church at Virginia Tech offered. Their simple teachings on prayer and on the Word transformed my relationship with God. I always love to share these teachings with people, especially with those who are just growing in their faith. This…
